Brad Meltzer The President's Shadow Book CoverBrad Meltzer, a bestselling political thriller novelist and non-fiction writer, will visit Mission Viejo this summer to discuss his latest Culper Ring novel "The President's Shadow."

The New York Times bestselling author of "The Inner Circle"; "The Book of Fate"; and seven other bestselling thrillers including "The Tenth Justice" and "Dead Even," Meltzer is also the TV host of "Brad Meltzer's Lost History" on H2 and "Brad Meltzer's Decoded" on the History Channel. The Hollywood Reporter recently put him on its list of Hollywood's 25 Most Powerful Authors. Meltzer has penned several non-fiction children’s books including "Heroes for My Son" and Heroes for My Daughter" and is one of the co-creators of the TV show "Jack & Bobby."

In writing "The President's Shadow," he conducted in-depth interviews with an array of top government agencies, historians and a past president. The story delves into little-known parts of American history to reveal government cover-ups and secret military locations.

Folks can pre-order the book online at bradmeltzer.brownpapertickets.com to receive priority seating and book signing of the first edition copy of "The President's Shadow." Books will also be on sale during this free presentation by Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore.

Vanessa Diffenbaugh - We Never Asked for Wings CoverWe Never Asked for Wings by New York Times bestselling author, Vanessa Diffenbaugh will be presented on Wednesday, August 19th at 7pm in the City Hall Council Chamber.

Vanessa’s powerful New York Times bestseller debut novel, The Language of Flowers, sold in more than 40 territories and spent a staggering 69 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. In her deeply moving new novel, Vanessa explores young love, hard choices, second chances, and what it means to be a family. 

 

NPR called The Language of Flowers catnip for book club and We Never Asked for Wings will more than likely follow suit with  discussion-worthy themes ranging from motherhood and young love, to inequality and undocumented immigration.

To RSVP for this free event please register online, via email at libreference@cityofmissionviejo.org, or by phone at 949-830-7100, ext. 5105. If registering by email or phone please include your name, e-mail address, and number in your party.
